When it comes to sports games none have done it better than EA. From Madden to Fifa, The Skate series, you name it, they’ve done it and succeeded. Even last year when they released their 2K Basketball competitor, NBA Live. It still managed to somehow stand its ground against 2K’s new open world feature that they curved out onto the playing field.
My Nintendo Switch was getting barely any love from me or my waifu. It’s not from lack of content because there has been a steady stream of content lately. The Switch hurts my darn hands and wrists!
I thought about 3D printing something that would give the joycons some depth, something to grasp onto but I am a busy person without time to make it worthwhile. Lucky for me Skull & Co. (sweet name for a company) had the same issue and decided to not be lazy like myself. They created a silicon wrap that has areas to allow hands to have something to grip to.
The grips are colored in a range of Nintendo Switch-esque palettes. I ordered the neon yellow because I like to party. It comes with 2 types of grips that you can change out depending on what you feel is most comfortable. Also included is a case that has room for the Switch with the GripCase, battery charger, games, and cables.
The price is a little high, starting at $46 but does include free shipping. I was concerned when I saw that Skull & Co. are based in Australia because shipping can be quite high but since it is included there are less worries.
The GripCase is scheduled to ship in October 2017. I look forward to playing games as an adult and not worrying about cramping carpal tunnel! Let us know if you order one!

It’s getting pretty exciting with the Nintendo Switch launch coming this Friday! Now we have a list of indie games coming to the Switch. GDC has been a whirlwind of information and it is exciting to think of what meetings Nintendo is having with developers behind closed doors here at GDC 2017.
The Nintendo Switch is officially coming out on March 3, 2017 at $299 US. But is it what gamers want?
The Switch has been in the works and known to the public since E3 of 2015 as the Nintendo NX. Rumors swirled for a full year until Nintendo officially named it the Switch in October. But outside of the name and the general release date, we didn’t know what the Switch would really do. Then, late night Thursday, January 12, 2017 Nintendo finally confirmed a lot of information about their new console.
